Whether you breastfeed or bottle-feed your multiples, you'll have lots of questions. We've pulled together a list of resources that we hope will help.
Connect with support
A great starting point is to connect with support from "those who know" from your local AMBA club. Take advantage of the club's support, events, community, resources and information. Connecting gives you an opportunity to ask questions of a number of other parents of multiples to see what their experience has been. Connect in person at club events, such as an expectant parent information session or playgroup, or online via your club's social media presence or AMBA's Forum.
Publications for purchase from AMBA
The Australian Breastfeeding Association's Breastfeeding: twins, triplets and more booklet explains in detail the 'how to' of breastfeeding.
A number of AMBA clubs have bottle-feeding and breastfeeding pillows and/or breast pumps that you can loan or hire. Clubs can also help you to connect you with members who may be selling equipment. Use the AMBA Club Finder to find your local club. You can also make your own breastfeeding pillow using this template.
